Officials said a man suspected of driving drunk early Thursday morning had to hold on to a truck to keep his balance and offered money to avoid getting arrested.

Adam May, 54, of Zachary, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of DWI (third offense), driving under suspension for prior offenses, failure to signal lane change, expired registration and public bribery.

According to the probable cause report, May was pulled over on River Road around 12:30 a.m. The document stated May failed to use his turn signal when changing lanes.

The trooper with Louisiana State Police who conducted the stop said May claimed he had a few drinks at Hollywood Casino. The trooper added May performed poorly on field sobriety tests.

According to the trooper, while May was being put in the back of the unit, he said, "Come on man, I'll give you $100 right now if you don't arrest me."

The probable cause report also stated a breathalyzer sample from May returned a blood alcohol content of .158 percent.
